‘White Girl’ Exclusive Poster: Elizabeth Wood’s Sundance Shocker Gets Some Steamy Marketing

The "explosive" drama that shocked Sundance is coming to theaters this fall.

“White Girl”

Elizabeth Wood’s feature directorial debut “White Girl” dropped more than a few jaws when it premiered earlier this year at Sundance, where its unflinching look at female sexuality, life in the big city and raw human desire shocked audiences.

The bold film follows Morgan Saylor as Leah, a college kid who unexpectedly falls for Blue, played by Brian “Sene” Marc, a bad boy who is hardly her typical love interest. When a wild night of partying pulls them apart, Leah sets out to win him back, no matter what the price or the consequences.

The film has been hailed as being “explosive,” “shocking” and “sexy as hell,” all adjectives and descriptors that are front and center on the film’s first poster which is, dare we say it, perhaps a bit NSFW? It’s also bold, fresh and evocative — just like the film it’s selling.

Wood began writing the screenplay for “White Girl” before she attended Columbia University’s screenwriting MFA program and reportedly loosely based the film on her own life. The film was produced by such heavy hitters as Christine Vachon, as well as the directorial team Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost.

“White Girl” will hit theaters in September, thanks to FilmRise.
